This Citation Template Structure is to be used for referring to UN documents from a Wikipedia article. Detailed instructions are available on WP:CITE#HOW. But for a very brief introduction by way of an example, see the Water for Life Decade page and click on "edit" to see the source text. In it you should find:

 <ref name="UN_ARES58217_page2">{{UN document |docid=A-RES-58-217 |
    type=Resolution |body=General Assembly |session=58 | resolution_number=217|
    highlight=rect_190,300_813,350 |page=2 |accessdate=2007-11-13|
    date=23 December 2003}}</ref>

This is a generic representation of the document containing its official symbol, a page number, several parameters such as session number, type, and finally a highlighting to bring the readers attention to a specific part of the page. The <ref> part causes it to appear as a footnote.

For an explanation of the format of the docid (known as the document symbol), see United Nations Document Codes.

Best practice[modifier le code]

If you are viewing a document on the [1] site and you want to reference it in a wikipedia article, it is recommended that you find the line at the top of a holding page which says:

wiki [(some greyed text here)]

and cut and paste from the text box. This will give provide a citation to the document in a correct form for use by this template.

If you are reading transcripts of a speech, then you can click on the

[link to here]

box to the side of the text and be presented with a similar text box as above from which to cut and paste the fully formed template citation.

Every official United Nations document has a unique ID. An outline of the coding system is at United Nations Document Codes.
